Disinfection

Disinfection is a measure to reduce through killing, inactivation or removal/dilution, the quantity of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa, spores, in order to control the risk of infection for people or contaminated objects or environments.

The concept of disinfection when applied to surfaces and environments has different meaning than sterilization which is the absolute removal of microorganisms.
